Early diagnosis is key
As cancer screening programs become more and more widespread, our products can help to diagnose a range of cancers quickly, simply, accurately and cost effectively. Early diagnosis has the potential to not only prolong the life of patients, but also to improve their quality of life.
“Screening increases the chances of detecting certain cancers early when they are most likely to be curable”American Cancer Society
“Current cancer diagnosis frequently involves expensive, unpleasant and, often, invasive testing. Using our Nu.Q™ technology we aim to make cancer diagnosis as accessible as cholesterol or pregnancy testing”Dr. Jake Micallef, PhD, MBACSO
A simple test, just a drop of blood
“A blood-based test offers lower cost & more patient-friendly alternative with higher patient uptake for identifying those who must be offered colonoscopy & those where it’s not needed" Professor of Surgical Oncology at University of Copenhagen, Hans Jorgen-Nielsen
Rethinking the approach to cancer
Nu.Q™ represents a powerful step change in rethinking the approach to cancer. It is a simple solution to the challenging problem of early cancer diagnosis.
Our expert team
Volition was established in 2010 when our team saw a chance to bring together the long-established ELISA diagnostic technology with the cutting-edge nucleosome detection and analysis techniques.
We have grown over the years and are now a collective force of distinct individuals but our aim is the same – to save lives by revolutionizing the way cancer is diagnosed.
